Language of Instruction: English

Course Description


Do your students like rap music? Would you consider incorporating it into your lessons? Can hip hop culture help educate our youth?

Join us for a discussion of these questions and more in a live interview with MC Sha-Rock, The First Female of Hip Hop Culture. Her rap group, the legendary Funky 4 Plus One, was not only the first to feature a female rapper, but also the first to have a recording deal and perform live on national television.

In this webinar, we’ll get up close and personal with Sha-Rock, a true pioneer who has dedicated her career to promoting hip hop. We’ll talk about the power rap has to teach and inspire young people-particularly in this new age of social media-as well as the public voice it can offer women in a male-dominated culture.

About the Presenter :

Since her early days as a groundbreaking artist, Sha-Rock has remained true to hip hop’s mission of promoting peace, unity, and having fun. She began her career as a b-girl/break dancer in the Bronx, New York and is known in the Hip Hop community today as the “Luminary Icon” and “Mother of the Mic.”

In 2013, MC Sha-Rock founded Tomorrow’s Footprints, an organization committed to preserving the history and fundamentals of hip hop culture through music and dance. In April of that year she was appointed National Advisor for the Cornell University Hip Hop Library Collection. She is a recipient of the Honorary Award from the Council of New York and The Women’s Distinction Award from The Hip Hop Culture Center in Harlem. She has been featured in numerous magazines, books, and documentaries about hip hop, including Thirty Years of Hip Hop and My Mic Sounds Nice.

Through lectures, public appearances, and direct work with at-risk youth, Sha-Rock serves as a mentor and educator, delivering an inspiring message of self-empowerment. She is currently working with the Real Queens of Hip Hop Tour and promoting her book, Luminary Icon.
